    Is both not an option? If not I'd probably keep the AR.

    Both is an option, I just don't shoot rifles much. I have had the AR for three or four years and it has only been out twice. I just took the Sig in on trade.

    I'd keep the Bushmaster,.......never could warm up to the Sig 556.
    Tons of parts and accessories available for the AR. Time proven design
    I love 'em!

    Ideally, you should find out which one shoots better and is more reliable. But I prefer a gun that you can modify and find parts for easier, which is definitely the AR. I would stick with the AR.

    The 556 I owned had horrible balance, crappy sights and the trigger sucked.

    I traded it for a Ruger SR556 which as just as unwieldy (too much weight out front for me), but the trigger was better, as were the iron sights.

    I sold it for a $5 loss and now have two standard DI ARs, one carbine, one mid-length. They suit me very well.

    AR.
    There is absolutely no doubt as to which one of these 2 has more available parts,accessories,or other technical support.

    I was in the same place as you. I decided to keep the AR. I will have my SIG 556 SWAT posted up here in the next few days if I can get motivated to do it. My wife is getting an AR and I like having a common platform. The SIG is nice, but is an oddball now.
